Boromir: The Shards of Narsil! The blade that cut the ring from Sauron's hand.
(He runs his finger up the blade, and cuts himself.) Still sharp!
DAY SEVEN ~ FAVORITE WEAPON
Oh, boy, this will be super hard!!! The amazing weapons are one of my favorite things about Middle Earth and I think they did a wonderful job with them in the movies. I like them all- Legolas' bow, the various swords and axes, but at the very top, I will always love Aragron's sword Anduril. Reforged by the elves from the shards of his ancestor Elendil's sword Narsil, it is a symbol of Aragorn's lineage and his rightful heritage as King of Gondor and Arnor.
My favorite quotes about Anduril and Narsil:
Galadriel (Prologue): It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father's sword. The Fellowship of the Ring (movie)
Aragorn: Anduril! Anduril for the Dunedain! The Two Towers (book)
Elrond: Anduril, Flame of the West, forged from the shards of Narsil. Return of the King (movie)
Renewed shall be blade that was broken... (from the Riddle of Strider)
Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West. The Fellowship of the Ring (book)
